Hardly a stretch to say the least, but still enjoyable.

I'm no parent but if I were I wouldn't take my kids to see a good majority of the safe, boring so-called "family" movies.

I found this one to be very funny and entertaining.

This movie is VERY hilarious and its storyline is also enjoyable.

It is funny, fresh, and so enjoyable that I predict most adults will come to love it.

Big Fat Liar is a fun movie, the kind of movie that is fantastic the first time you see it, okay the next, and snooze-down-boring the third time.

It's plain, simple fun, enjoyable and frequently energetic.

Our whole family enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it and they enjoyed it.

It was actually a pretty dull movie, where nothing really fun happens.

It's more for the younger audience but I still found it to be somewhat enjoyable.

Which works out pretty well, since the part would've been pretty dull without the blessing of Bynes's abilities.

It is a kids film, so if it seems corny, cheesy or predictable, just keep that in mind, and try to enjoy the performances and slapstick.

Surprisingly enjoyable to an old dude.

The pranks just kept getting wilder and wilder, which was not very realistic, but certainly entertaining for the kids.

One of the worst movies ever made.

I highly recommend it.

This Movie is really an entertaining, good clean fun movie, for the kiddies.

This film will never be a classic, but for what it's worth I actually quite enjoyed it, despite not being the target audience it was aimed at.

It's just a big waste of film and 2 hours of your life.

I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take the whole family out for a nice evening at the movies.

Very enjoyable.

But it's entertaining, and it's fun.

" Perhaps, but it's still a mildly enjoyable film even though the luster it once had has long since worn off.

So, for kids who like slapstick and silliness, this movie could be very entertaining.

I'm not sure what he did could be called good acting, but he was very entertaining and over the top.

Great for the kids - they found it very entertaining.

Adults on the other hand, may find this to be too boring and safe.

It's just so enjoyable and keeps you interested from start till the end.

The point is, if there was anyone else in this role who was "half-trying" because he/she was just another classic, boring villain in a kids movie, this movie would be nothing more than just that.

Yea the film does work as an advertisement for Universal Studios theme park and is really kinda a silly kids film.. but i enjoyed it anyways.

This very enjoyable, funny movie was made before Giamatti became a star in American Splendor and Sideways.

This is one of the worst movies I've seen this year, why does Hollywood keep spitting out this kind of garbage into public eyes.

Probably one of the worst movies ever turned...

Big Fat Liar is an absurd yet entertaining movie from the infamous writer Dan Schneider.

Frankie Muniz is one of the most unbearable child actors in the bizz.

The scene is so goofy and unexpected that the only rational response is to laugh and embrace the current situation.

There's a pleasantly kind soul to its roots and an entertaining series of events that unfold, even if you're expecting them.
